Nightmare in Daylight

Nightmare in Daylight

.

Yesterday began like any other day

The sky suffused with pink from top to toe

No portent of what was to come

Of what I would have to bear alone…

Grossly betrayed by my being —

Nothing new but surely in the past

Pass-ed and all but forgotten

Vapourised and/or evaporated

Memories flooded my brain

My nightmare had returned – again

Bully

.

Softly, slowly drawing strength,

Relying wholly on weakness seen,

Parasites steal the light,

Leaving only darkness after

Taking joy from others’ laughter,

Growing bigger, stronger, harder.

.

Cruelty, malice, hatred, spite

Flourish, but well out of sight,

Cunning, crafty as a fox,

Hiding under pleasantries

But dishing out his penalties,

Remedies for frailties.
